We'd come out for dinner on our last evening so we could also visit the Dubai Fountains. With limited time and looking around outside by the lake area we chose the Californian Pizza Kitchen and sat outside on a jetty. We'd not come across this company before but fancied a pizza as something different to what we'd had all holiday.... More

The location is ideal for tourists. I must say that pizzas are quite good but I definitely suggest to try the salads. I don't give more stars just because the service should be more careful.

Also some main dishes. 20-25 minutes passed and the first course did not arrive, while on other tables that arrived after us their food arrived. We called the manager and told him where is the...

Friendly staff offering efficient service. The pizza I had was very nice and freshly baked in a woodoven. Prices are ( for Dubai) very reasonable. This place doesnt offer haute cuisine ofcourse but for a nice bite to eat when visiting the Emirates mall a good place to go.

In the Dubai mall there are plenty of places to eat. This is a sit in restaurant with table service, pasta pizza etc. Food was ok, service good and reasonable price.

The CPK at the Dubai Mall has great food, but the service is painfully slow. If you're feeling very patient, go for the food. Otherwise, avoid.
